Eve Duncan and Joe Quinn must protect the life of a brilliant scientist so that she can live long enough to bring her discovery to the world, in this fast-paced thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen.
Diane Connors is a dedicated doctor with the world’s biggest secret, a discovery that could have shocking global ramifications.  But while conducting private research trials, word has gotten out. The wrong people have heard the news and now want to hide Diane’s achievement for their own ends.

With nowhere else to turn, Diane finds herself on the doorstep of the last man she wants to ask for help: her ex-husband, Joe Quinn. Joe has remarried, and he and his wife, Eve Duncan, seem blissfully happy in their quiet, rural life until they are faced with the challenge of risking it all—even their marriage itself—for the greater good …

Now Eve is trapped in a web of murder and deceit as powerful enemies rush to cover up the truth, determined that Diane’s discovery goes with her to the grave—even if Eve and Joe get buried with her.


Eve Duncan has agreed to work alongside husband Joe Qqinn's ex-wife Diane Connors. She has discovered a medical miracle that someone would love to take right out of her hands and use it to control and destroy the world. Can Eve and Joe help Diane, despite the ever-present danger facing them?

This story of something that could save lives in a big way could end up in the wrong hands. Along with protecting the invention, Eve's expertise as a forensic sculptor is needed for someone close to Diane. There has been an attempt on Diane's life which ends up keeping Joe on his toes. 

The Bullet is the exciting twenty-seventh book in the thrilling Eve Duncan series. Just as the story has Eve and Joe, their gifted son Michael also plays a pivitol role. The story is fast-paced and lives are under severe threat while Diane perfects her discovery. Will everyone involved suvive the danger facing them? This compelling read makes me for than eager for the next book in the series.
Many thanks to Grand Central Publishing and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
